In my last post on Kindle pricing I theorized that “by the summer of 2012, it will be generally free in its lowest-priced version.” The latest edition of kindles to come out, at a new $79 price point in November, supports that hypothesis. The R2 value has increased to .95 and linear regression puts the date at which the kindle becomes free to 8/11/2012.
It’s fair to say:
A year from now, Amazon will give a free Kindle (but of course, you gotta buy their books/movies/etc)!
